It's January. It's cold outside. I may have the winter blues. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE winter. I love snow and we've had such a beautiful winter so far! Just today it was snowing softly on the already 6" of lovely powder, re-coating the cleared spots with some more icy sugar. But I must say that these days can get to me. There is no color and it's quite chilly out. I had my hair done this morning and added some more gold to it...I don't know, maybe in hopes that it will warm up my days! I was talking to my Mom while I drove home and she was telling me a little story - a man and his wife owned a cat and one winter, the cat would go to every door in the house (that lead outside) and would paw at it until they would come over to open it, letting her outside. Only she wouldn't go outside...she would simply look out for a moment and then turn back into the house. Finally, the husband said, "Why does she do that! What doesn't she just go outside?" To which the wife answered, "She's looking for the doorway into Summer". Really folks, aren't we all?
Aren't we all longing for lazy afternoons and flowerbeds? Snow cones, garden vegetables and the 4th of July parade? Tan lines, BBQ's, lawnmowers, screen doors and leafy trees? Since I can't create June out of thin air (or can I?...), I may have to get creative. Perhaps I'll make some BBQ chicken for dinner, with corn on the cob and lemonade. Ice cream for dessert, anyone? It may not go along with the healthy foods Cody and I are trying to live by, but what better way to create Summer than with a little indulgence?
